Ever since the show premiered in 2003, Pauley played "Abby Sciuto", who is a forensics expert and an IT-specialist. "Abby" was regarded particularly eccentric and her methods tend to be rather unconventional. Her trademark was the gloomy Gothic style.. Unfortunately, Pauley left the show at the end of season 15!
As it turns out, "Ziva" had a child with another popular former Special Agent: "Toni DiNozzo", played by the amazing Michael Weatherly, who never knew about this. After he found out about his daughter "Tali", he left the Naval Criminal Investigative Service to take care of her - and Michael Weatherly's tenure in NCIS ended after 13 seasons!
